I was all ready to be extremely skeptical of this studies findings until I saw who came in dead last, and then thought that there must be some validity to it.
Take it how you want (Size and Wealth shouldn't matter, i would however like to see this ranking with just fans turning up when the team is down)The Dallas Cowboys have worn the nickname 'America's Team' as a badge of honor
for 35 years, and now two university professors have given some academic weight
to that title.
A study from Emory University in Atlanta found that the
Cowboys, long a fixture on America's TV sets, have the most loyal fan base in
The study measured fan attendance on game day and controlled for
factors like the size and wealth of the market and whether fans still turn up
when the team isn't performing so well on the field.
Charger loyal?? Maybe..ignorant yes!!! After the crap we've been through!!! Were the best fans!! Dallas are usually illegal immigrant banwaganers!! My full calf chiefs tattoo says I'm a huge fan!!!!
There are liars, damned liars and then there are statisticians. But of course, even a blind statistician finds a bone every now and then......they got things right for the Faders.
The Chargers at #11 ?? Are you kidding me? Is it just me, or has anyone else met more Chargers fans than Raiders fans?
That looks like the same article I read on the webs, it is based off the last three seasons I believe. Given our last 3 years we did well on that list.
The Oakland rank is odd to me, i mean over Miami and SD....come on. Florida has the worst sports fan (unless its college).
Also i'm an idiot (and it won't let me edit my own post???) but it should say 21 out of 32..my bad
Also GB at 14 is odd
